Jobs Action Plan and Fresh Start Support

Scheduled maintenance
The Jobs action plan online service will be unavailable between 9.00pm and 9.30pm on Wednesday, 21 November due to scheduled maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience. -->

The Jobs Action Plan online service has been upgraded with additional search functions. You can now search:

  • by your payment reference number. This will allow you to view the position/s that were paid under that payment reference number
  • for a registered position by the employee name or the lodgement reference number (NJR reference) and edit that search result.

Using the online form

Note: From 23 November 2015, late registrations for the Jobs Action Plan will only be accepted, without justification, if made within 90 days of the commencement of the new position.

For more information, read the Revenue Rulings.
